night live at from boston is john king stale former executive director of the massachusetts health insurance connector authority. thank you for joining us. >> my pleasure. explain whate you your job was in the commonwealth. >> i ran the commonwealth health insurance connector authority. it was an exchange for primarily folks who do not have insurance, low and moderate income. insurers 250,000 people. >> more immediately, the looming deadline, this saturday, the white house a department of health and human serious is -- services insisting that healthcare.gov will be operational. what is your confidence level it will be working? >> they are making steady progress, and would expect come the end of november, it will be better than it is today. it won't be perfect. this is going to be a work in progress for some months to come to get a completely up to snuff, and then for years, to continue to improve it. we did that in massachusetts. >> you have been quoted as saying it is more than just a website problem. explain. it is an entire reform, particularly for the small group insurance mark
're going to grind it out. >> one year ago this week, president obama beat former massachusetts governor mitt romney in the 2012 election. now the president invokes the name of his defeated gop rival to defend health care reform. in just a moment, governor romney joins me for an exclusive interview. and president obama's approval rating is at an all-time low. obamacare is at a rough start. more u.s. spy revelations have rocked even our closest allies. and did the president consider replacing vice president joe biden with then-secretary of state hillary clinton? that's according to a bombshell in a new book "double down, game changing 2012." bob woodward, katty kay, david axelrod, bill kristol. i'm david gregory in washington. >>> and good sunday morning. the killing of a tsa agent at los angeles international airport is raising questions about the motives of the 23-year-old suspect, and also airport security. do tsa agents need to be armed? our justice correspondent pete williams will be here in a little while to give us an update and fresh report on all of that. but first, the obama car
: cindy, thank you for your comment. bob is next from massachusetts. independent line. my comment is pretty much the same as the last woman's. i think the president is making the biggest mistake that we will ever hear. he can't give these people a right to keep all that stuff. they will nuke israel. there is no doubt. he will nuke israel and i bet you it will happen inside of six months. i'm sorry. have a nice day. host: mike is joining us from washington state. caller: good morning, mike. i am an iraq veteran. those to say this, countries don't care about us and they don't care about israel. ist is their whole mission to destroy israel. when people are saying that they should not be -- that they should be allowed to enrich nuclear program, what we should not be -- we should not be dealing with terrorists at all. as with what these people do. israel has been having dumped on for centuries. i am an irish italian catholic and i support israel. i don't have the same religious views, but i completely support israel. we need to stand by israel. there are christian sites in israel that
to and even then at the very last minute. under romney-care in massachusetts, in many ways, this was the template of the affordable care act. this is where things stood after one month, 123 people have seened up. granted, it is one state, there are 34 states using the federal obama care website. that's about one-third of 1%. after otwo months in massachusetts, just 2,300 people have enrolled. it was only after 11 months under the threat of a penalty about to be imposed that more than 36,000 people in massachusetts would go on to enroll. most of them didn't enroll until that 11-month mark. so obama care can work. it won't kick in until the end of next march, five months from now. getting it to work depends on getting the problems ironed out and getting americans of all ages signed up. the obama administration needs to straighten out the political mess it's created. it's not just one future cabinet secretary at stake. this is the fate of the democratic party and beyond it is tied to whether obama care succeeds. the short term, that means getting the website fixed. in the long
in america. >> massachusetts. >> encorrect. this state will become the 16th in america to legalize same-sex marriage. you have already rung in i can't allow. that i'm sorry, there are rules here time, calm time. illinois will almost the 16th state according to reports this week, charlie krchrist my face fight -- robert. >> bill nelson. >> may face a primary challenge. 200 point question signing a bill that encourages epi pen availability in schools, president obama revealed. >> daughter has allergy. >> more correct. >> malia is allergy ec to peanuts. >> next question after the final taped episode aired the week, the a & e new yorker refused to confirm or don't reports it has cancelled reports about this louisiana governor an convicted felon. >> edward edwards. >> we will accept ed war. and 200 points there. this is an instant bonus question. vote for the crook. it's important was a popular bumper sticker when he defeated whom for louisiana's governship in known 91? >> durk, david duke the former chanceman. 200 more points. 200 point question a profile noted the wife of this west coast d
? >> right. the white house continues to point to massachusetts where 123 people enrolled in the program the first month. that number steadily grew. >> speaking of massachusetts, i thought it was fascinating yesterday, the same man that accused mitt romney of killing a woman, remember that? mitt romney killed my wife. remember that commercial? he was such a beast, a horrible human being. mitt romney killed my wife. barack obama believed that. >> obama did not claim that. the president did not say that. >> hillary clinton wasn't running against him in 2012. >> this commercial was put together by some sort of arm. >> somebody very close to barack obama. barack obama takes responsibility, the buck stops with barack obama. >> okay. >> barack obama and his campaign and people connected to his campaign and people closely associated with him in the past claimed that mitt romney killed a woman. >> okay. the story is bad enough, you don't need to do that. >> can i please make my point? i'm going to say it again, barack obama, his campaign, they all claimed in 2012. it was one of the most horrific
in massachusetts and the same people who were the architects of the affordable care act, so to say that they were different plans is ridiculous. >> dave, you've heard republicans have been very critical here of obama care specifically the individual mandate. and mitt romney did make a comment on that. take a listen. >> you say it should only be done at the state level, but here's what he said in 2007 about the idea of the thmandate. >> i think you'll find when it's all said and done after all the states that are the laboratories of democracy get their chance to try their own plans, that those who follow the path that we pursued will find it's the best path and we'll end up with a nation that has taken a mandate approach. >> so what is your thought here? what is done on the state level, is it reasonable for think it can be done on the national level? >> i'll say something very rare. i think romney is being consistent. actually is consistent to say he wants a state plan being he wants the federal government to stay out of it. it might irritate democrats to see him again, but he is making a correct
of massachusetts and that was changed as a national symbol. kennedy made it romantic and republicans were able to reduce it to harvard, symbolic out of the mainstream, too smart for prime time sort of thing. we both know boston is far more than harvard. scott brown is very much massachusetts just as elizabeth warren is. and i can see a guy like chris christie coming out of somewhere, southy or some other area in the greater boston area, like massachusetts is so much more than we were tagged dukakis. >> that gets to -- the reason i like michael dukakis, if somebody is wondering, why does he care about dukakis 25 years later? i think he gets one of the worst raps and unfair raps of any sort of modern major political figure. part of what you're saying about massachusetts is this idea of him being the harvard brookline tech no craft, volvo, wine and cheese, that's the label -- this image that stuck around him. i think it's tremendously unfair. not who he is. if you look at his rise in massachusetts, he appealed to the first generation and second generation pride, families off the boat struggling t
always assumed that, based on massachusetts' experience, the initial sign up will be very slow. and in fact, no payments have to be made until december 15 for coverage on january 1. so, while we don't like the problems we had in october and fixing it in november, we do not think it will impact the timeline because we have a six- month enrollment, so we still have four months left and individuals can apply up until march. >> thank you. thank you, mr. chairman. >> now to senator robert. -- senator roberts. senator robert? >> thank you, mr. chairman. 'm going to focus, if i can, on the concerns raised by senator isakson, alexander, and the chairman, on security and privacy. we have a law, the federal information security management .ct, his mother --fisma everything has to have an acronym. it requires each agency to a point a chief security officer to ensure americans private financial and identifying information is protected. and that is a big issue. secretary civilians revealed last week exchanges operating on temporary authority to operate. there is a 2012 12 memo from zyonts,
is under way this morning this hour for a massachusetts teen accused of killing a teacher, a grand jury indicted 14-year-old philip c s chisholm yesterday. ical lecnn has been covering th story from the beginning and pamela brown is covering the case. >> you're right christine and john. i was in danvers right after this teacher was murdered and it really stunned the community and now we're learning more horrific details in the story. we have obtained the murder indictment, we obtained that yesterday for 14-year-old philip chisholm. he'll be tried as an adult in superior court for that charge and we're also learning he faces two additional charges for aggravated rape and armed robbery. as of now he's charged as a youthful offender for those. the armed robbery indictment alleges that chisholm armed with a box cutter robbed her of her credit cards, cash and underwear. he sexually assaulted her with an object, this is new information we're learning and this story from the beginning has been so devastating, so horrific, and it's just -- >> it's a teacher that everyone really loved and a com
that because we know the product is good. senator boxer talked about the massachusetts experience in which during the first month of their enrollment for the massachusetts exchange, only .3 #% of the total signed up during that month. why? because people take time. this is not animal easy decision to sign up for health care. in connecticut where we have an exchang that's up and running, a wbsz thabs working, the first month, know our number? it was not.# # #%, but enrolled 10% of the expected total in the first 30 days, and here's what people say about their experience with connecticut's exchange. one said, this is a great resource for cops residents to apply for health coverage, thanks to the health care law. another said, i chose access health because i've been denied in the past by other carriers. before this law changed. another said, thank you so much for this health care law. i have not been insured in a decade. i am so, so, so thankful. another said, thank you for this program. i lost my job a year ago and couldn't find anything that i could afford in health coverage before this law
. there was 1955 speech at the assumption college in my hometown of massachusetts, where he said about the cold war that i believe religion itself is at the root of the struggle and not in terms of the physical organizations or christianity versus those of atheism, but in terms of good versus evil and right versus wrong. and in his remarks during the campaign at the tabernacle in salt lake city, where he said the enemy is a communist system itself, insatiable and unceasing in its drive for world domination, it is also a struggle for supremacy between conflicting nato ologies, freedom under god versus godless turning. in kennedy's famous lines in the inaugural address, the same revolutionary beliefs for which we are still at issue around the globe. coming not from the generosity of the state, but from the hand of god. we shall pay any price and bear any burden and meet any hardship and support any friends and oppose any foe to assure the survival and success of liberty. and ask not what your country can do for you, but ask what you can do for your country. and in december 1962 he said it are two cho
. >> but to the prototype for obama care, the massachusetts health care plan created by mr. obama's former 2012 rival, mitt romney, in that first month, in that program, slow rollout, only roughly 100 people signed up. >> virtually every resident in the commonwealth is insured today. >> health care reform in this state was a success. that doesn't mean it was perfect right away. >> officials warn, the numbers would be low. >> that doesn't include those who enrolled in state exchanges. >> the state exchanges, which are essentially set up for free by the federal government in the states that accepted them, are doing very well. >> it's cranking out people that are joining up every day. >> over the last three years, internal obstacles and bureaucratic molasses threatened the whole enterprise. >> when you go to the pulse center and find out how many residents in that state are being helped, you only shake your head as to why we aren't doing that in every state of the union. >> all of this is in place right now. it is working right now. >> if there is a way that you can insure every one of your people or get them

in massachusetts, too. the young people are last-minute folks. we expect them to roll in december 15 and expect them to do so until the bitter end in march. >> you have people who can use this program to their advantage. these are people who need a lot of medical services, and for which their expenditures are slight. then those who are paying a lot into the program. it's only common sense. why would you need to pay into a program before you could use it. it will have a lot some of outflows and very few inflows. martha: anyone who has a medical condition and they are concerned. they are definitely going to make sure they get on. it's interesting as well. the federal government as part of the deal gave the health insurance companies assurances if it became too onerous on them them would get a federal subsidy to keep this whole thing going and we know where that money comes from. that's taxpayer money. >> you can't give away valuable resource and expect people not to overuse them. it's like putting me on 0 bufft where i can eat all i want and i'll eat the caviar until i throw up. the question is

worked on the massachusetts plan. it didn't raise taxes our cut medicaid and this one does. if they can't get the website right, what makes you think they will be able to get the health care itself correct. >> the ones calling for delay now are not the republicans, it's the democrats. there is about a dozen says let's push back the mandate, the penalty, joe mansion of west virginia saying let's delay it a year. we're going to talk about gop problems, but how big of a burden could obama care be for democrats in 2014? >> it could potentially be a very significant burden, chris. i imagine most of the people calling fe delay are -- for del are up for reelection. i think the political impact depends on two things. number one, the behavior of the republicans. if that was the case, that will shift attention away. assuming they don't do that, let's turn to substance. if there are many more cancellations, that's the big problem. if you look at the american people who have coverage really care about, it's have u lower cost increases. it would be because of other factors, that will politically be

, for example, noted that in the first month of sign-ups for the massachusetts version of health reform, only 100 people signed none the whole first month. but in massachusetts, eventually the glitches got ironed out, and enrollment numbers went up. and now in massachusetts, there is essentially universal coverage. that state is essentially the template for our national numbers. but the numbers out today, 100,000 people signed up in the first month. in addition, another one million people were determined to be eligible for getting a new play in marketplaces for health insurance. but they have not chosen a plan yet. the overall idea is for everybody to get insurance over time. the republicans are rejoicing in the early low numbers, praying nobody else signs up to get health insurance, but we'll see how it goes. history tells us these things do tend to start slowly. also in washington today, you just heard on "all in" with chris hayes, they also saw the introduction of a landmark new piece of federal legislation that would try to protect women's access to abortion, protecting it, not curtailing
part of massachusetts, west virginia and kentucky were once part of virginia, and tennessee was a break away from north carolina. and, of course, much of the south seceded and called itself a separate country until it was defeated in the civil war. secessionist by tradition it is almost like thanksgiving, thanksgiving stays and secession comes and goes. >> douglas brinkley is a professor of history at rice university in houston, and a cbs news contributor. he says the founding fathers made sure rural america was listened to starting with the way we choose a president. >> that is why we have electorial college system that we don't forget rural people, but that system of having two senators from every state regardless of population is a gesture, a big one, to rural populations that they are being listened to. >> reporter: listened to or not, these modern day movements are popping up from maryland to the upper peninsula of michigan to northern colorado. >> no way, colorado we are here to stay. >> reporter: in northern colorado this tuesday, voters in 11 counties will decide about letting t
and running and working, and my firm belief and everything we know from massachusetts is that we will get those people. when you have very good rates like you have in california, $50 for a 30-year-old -- >> here's the last question. with all the problems with the website more than a dozen senate democrats -- not republicans -- democrats are now saying put off the penalties, even delay. in one case manchin is saying tkhraoeu -- delay the individual mandate a year. we heard from max baucus, the senator who helped write obamacare, here he is. >> maybe we should start thinking about delaying penalties. it is not right to penalize people for mistakes the government has made because the exchange isn't working. >> should the penalties be delayed beyond march 31? >> no, they should not be delayed beyond march 31. if the website is working by november 30 people then will have a full four months to sign up and that is no reason to delay. and i don't think you can prejudge now. if it's working adequately by november 30 that's a whole new question. it's way premature to talk about it. i think it's go
in line two. no public school in 18th century boston admitted girls. beginning in 1701, massachusetts required for a messiah to teach boys to read and to write and girls to read. girls were not commonly taught to write in 18th century. they were taught inside to stitch. three in five women could not even find their names. many think about going to sign your name is not indication of literacy. it's a mechanical act. most of those who could sign their names could not actually write. the boston newspaper printed a dialogue between a tradesmen and his wife about the education of their daughter that gives you a glimpse of the 18th century ideas about women. the mother wishes to send her daughter to school. letter first fail to reach out during the bible that she may have mispronounced god people for constantinople. maker expert in radiator. the cosmic keeper and teacher was useful to boil and mixed the pudding, tonight, spin, so, to earn and to spend. i'll have her bread to book early, cookery. this is jane franklin's education. needle and thread. she cut her way to the candles, the worker
in massachusetts, and became so outraged by how politics adversely affected her patients that she became the green party candidate for president in 2012. inevitably, the paths of these two crossed. and in the proud tradition of american civil disobedience, they have joined hands to take on the system together, fighting against political corruption and a host of grievances that have led many others to cynicism and despair. each is a member of the green shadow cabinet, a group that offers policy alternatives to our dysfunctional government, and just days ago, they joined with the group nukefree.org to present a petition to the un -- 150,000 signatures -- asking the world to intercede at the fukushima nuclear plant in japan. the meltdown of reactors there after the earthquake and tsunami of march 2011 still threatens much of the world with radiation. japanese officials now say that residents of the area will never be able to return to their homes. radiation from the disaster has reached alaska and the canadian scientist david suzuki recently called attention to research saying that another quake hitt
numbers. but let's remember what happened in massachusetts with romney care. he was their candidate last year. >> i've heard of him. >> when he was governor of massachusetts, he had romney care. only 123 people signed up in the first month of the massachusetts health care law. 123. that's all that signed up. or just 0.3% of the total who signed up by the end. 20% signed up in the last month of enrollment. so just look what happened with romney care. the potential head of their party last year, they had less than 1% in the first month, 0.3% to be exact. and in the last month, 20% because as it gets closer to the due date, that's when people make a rush. it's almost like christmas shopping. >> exactly. yeah. >> so it takes time. and there's a demand. we see a similar trend nationally. >> we do. and, you know, we all have to be frustrated with the website problems. and i'm sure there were some missed opportunities there, but in terms of being on track for this law to work and for people to sign up by the date they need to sign up, we are still on track to be able to make things work. and ev
for the wrong reasons. mostly, the part of massachusetts where i'm fro didn't get any attention. when i was 12 years old, it got a lot, a lot of very positive reasons. it is because of this guy, paul tsongas. he had gone into local politics and in 1992, he was running for president. this is just when i was starting to get interested in politics. i didn't know much about the difference between the two parties. i knew it was really cool that someone that lived a few miles from our house was running for the white housing, the most important job in the world. every afternoon, the lowell sun would land on our doorstep. i would devour the information on the trail. i really wanted him to win. he won new hampshire and maryland and bill clinton overwhelmed him. there were a lot of reasons that he beat tsongas that year. one thing i knew, clinton had gotten rough and pushed the line. i was mad at bill clinton. i'll admit, i held a bit of a grudge. fast forward to 2007. i am writing a column i am not doing tv. i am a nobody. i am in thousands of dollars for debt. with hillary clinton setting out to run f
hill. he was in massachusetts touting his health care law in the state he claims obama care now is modelled on. massachusetts. the president struggled to address the wave of cancellation letters that are hitting both individuals and small businesses who buy their own insurance. this, of course, follows his repeated vows over several years that anyone who likes their insurance would be able to keep it. >> so if you're getting one of these letters, just shop around in the new marketplace. that's what it's for. >> our first guest tonight at that hearing today, she pressed sebelius on what some are calling the question of the day while making a strong point about obama care and lightening the mood just a bit at the same time. asking whether men can have babies, joining us, congresswoman renee elmers, member of the house committee on energy and commerce is x the republican women's policy committee. congresswoman, the question you asked, as i said, aside from lightening the mood, gets to some of the problems with obama care. did you expect an answer? >> you know, i knew that this was
romney who had to run away from his record in massachusetts. >> o'donnell: do you think governor christie can attract conservatives in a primary? >> i think he can attract conservestive in a primary he proved it in his own state. he got 94% of self i'd tied. >> these are in new jersey. >> this is in new jersey, correct. >> o'donnell: but not in iowa or south carolina. >> if anyone looks at the chris christie performance tuesday doesn't think that it's absolute slam dunk as model for future of the republican party they need to have their head examined. the truth is i spent a lot of time in iowa and new hampshire. seen a lot of you along the way. but the reality is that governor christie has got a proven record now appealing to both the center and conservative part of the republican party. if he's got great opportunity in the context of leading the rga which currently is the largest political committee in american poll six, 40-plus million dollars, can raise another hundred million. that's an important post that will help him focus on the -- haley barber rule, electing more governors nex
. it is 5:12. a police officer in massachusetts sunday investigation this morning. he is accused of steeling more than thousands of dollars from the department, but the reason why he says that he did it, it is a little heart breaking. it is 5:1 >> while you were sleeping, reaction to that historic nuclear great iran. already we're hering from a major sum ally not happy about that -- u.s. allay not happy with the agreement. >> now the obama administration has to sell this to critics. they have a deal with iran to have a six-month period of time to stop nuclear functions and add inspections. the plan has critics. >> i would caution them from overselling this deal because it is not a full dismantling of the program. >> israel calls it a historic mistake. capitol hill says they won't push to impose sanctions during the six-month agreement. the administration hopes to hammer out a longer-lasting, permanent deal. >> rich, thank you. time is now 5:16. an undecided race in the commonwealth is one step closer to being called in the attorney jen really's raus. -- general's raus. >> 5:17 now. d.c. cong
, and they will be lower because of the challenges on the website. with massachusetts, it is the president that makes sense -- precedent that makes sense to look at. you will see that the first month is going to be slow as people begin to familiarize themselves with options and then make choices they want to make when it comes to their health care. the othersident said day just a small fraction of americans would pay more. do you know what that fraction is? >> that is america question. i do not have that figure because here is the reality of what happens when you create a market that provides options to the american people. when you talk about it, and this is the focus we have discussed in the past, joe, on the portion of the percent -- 5% population that are insured in the individual insurance market, they often have one option, one carrier, one plan available, and every year that company can say your plan is canceled and here's your option, and it is usually a worse plan. what happens now to those individuals is they now have a variety of options. they have levels of coverage that begin with minimum leve
there is no way obamacare would have ever passed. massachusetts might like their health care plan but all of the polls show it and president obama not only his approval rating personally but politically as well has gone down as a result of the rollout. >> the polls show they like the shutdown even less. we will be sitting here and i promise you it is going to cost republicans in the midterm. martha: we will bring you back and find out. what does the president do now, what does he say, that continues to be asked this morning. always good to see you. bill: can a 6'5", 320-pound professional football player be bullied? why did miami dolphins player say he walked away from his team and the other player on that team now suspended indefinitely? martha: investigation into benghazi now goes to the next level. one senator issuing a bold threat the white house unless congress get some answers finally. >> the fact is we have four dead americans because of a protest or because of guys out for a while decided to kill some americans? what difference at this point does it make?
